Young's Literal Translation
Arise, O Jehovah, go before his face, Cause him to bend. Deliver my soul from the wicked, Thy sword,

Arise, O Lord, disappoint him - When he arises to spring upon and tear me to pieces, arise thou, O Lord; disappoint him of his prey; seize him, and cast him down.

On this ground the next verse should be read from men, By thy hand. So the margin. The hand of God not only meaning his power, but his providence.

If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow.
Deliver me from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dogs.
But you, God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of decay; the bloodthirsty and deceitful will not live out half their days. But as for me, I trust in you.
Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?
Then I called on the name of the LORD: "LORD, save me!"
